My name is Christine Bailey, and I am a qualified, registered counsellor, with experience of helping people of all ages with a wide variety of issues.
We all go through difficult times, and it can be hard to talk things through with friends or family. It often helps to talk to someone who is not personally involved, someone who is skilled at listening without making judgements. Counselling allows you to explore what is happening in a confidential and safe environment, with a trained professional who will focus on you and truly listen without judging or criticising you.
People generally experience me as approachable and friendly. I understand that it can be hard to pluck up the courage to seek help, but clients usually relax very quickly as they talk about what is going on for them.
